Reposting this, since it looks like we moved to forums, so I don’t think my question earlier showed up.
Is there a secure way to backup Bitwarden passwords, in the event that the Bitwarden platform goes down and we lose our account? I see two not good options, backup unencrypted, which would not be secure and the same as storing passwords in plain text, or encrypted, but this requires you to have the original bitwarden account (and if you cycle keys, you can’t recover it).
A few possible solutions, I use KeePass right now (I like that I remain in possession of my passwords file), and I did consider not switching, but I do like the browser plugins with bitwarden. KeePass has read only browser extension options, but they are third party, so I have no idea if they are sending my passwords to someone. I could maintain a copy of all my passwords in KeePass, it would be some work though but it would give me peace of mind.
Another is to backup with the unencrypted method onto an encrypted VeraCrypt volume. I am not sure how secure this is though and it feels dirty doing it this way.
Does anyone have any thoughts or other ideas?August 16, 2022 at 1:43 pm #14113TinuS
I like your idea about an unencrypted onto VeraCrypt USB volume, as a back-up.
